The SEDAR 54 assessment was conducted following a Standard approach and addressed the stock of Sandbar Shark. The assessment took place over a series of webinars scheduled from May to August 2017. The assessment was scheduled to be reviewed by by a CIE desk review in late 2017. For more information, please contact the SEDAR Coordinator for this project, Julie Neer: Julie.email@example.com

SEDAR 54 Desk Review
The SEDAR 54 assessment was conducted foloowing a Standard Approach. Standard assessments are usually reviewed by the Cooperator’s Scientific Advisory Body (SSC or TC). HMS does not have such a Scientifitc Advisory Body so SEDAR arranged for a Desk Review conducted by the Reviewers from the Center for Independent Experts.
